I just couldn‘t get into this - quit at 47% when I realized I was skimming. Life‘s to short to read a book I just want to be over. The new GA Aiken book is in from the library so I‘m ready to move on!
This is a great history book about Brian Boru, high king of Ireland, and the Battle of Clontarf. It's done with a novelist's prose, but a historian's insight. Lots of good resources at the end for further reading.
